i4F unveils new intuitive “HerringB/ONE” single panel drop-lock system

  • Same drop-lock mechanism on all herringbone panels delivers simplified installation and replacements
  • Streamlines manufacturer production as A&B panels become obsolete
  • Avoids additional multi-panel packaging costs
  • Reduces waste

DOMOTEXasia/CHINAFLOOR, BOOTH C15 – i4F®, a group of companies providing patents and technologies to the flooring industry, today announced the unveiling of its new “HerringB/ONE”, single panel drop-lock system, delivering multiple benefits to manufacturers, retailers, and consumers. i4F’s intuitive single panel technology features the same drop-lock mechanism on all herringbone panels, eliminating the need for mirroring A and B panels as well as delivering simplified installation and replacements. This patented technology is exclusively available via an i4F drop-lock license.

The elimination of A and B panels, via i4F’s new single panel drop-lock, benefits the entire supply chain. Manufacturers can streamline production, and reduce costs associated with multi-panel boxing, packaging, and instructions. Retailers are empowered to meet the surging demand for herringbone flooring by offering a super easy installation system. End-users also benefit from a reduction in panel wastage by being able to accurately calculate the required number of boxes according to their space’s surface area.


i4F’s CEO, John Rietveldt, comments, “i4F is simplifying the timeless elegance of herringbone across the board! By removing the need for mirroring A and B panels, overall efficiencies can be achieved. Production processes for our new HerringB/ONE are streamlined and packaging costs as well as waste are reduced. This benefits the entire value chain from global manufacturing to the growing demand for DIY-friendly flooring solutions. Now, homeowners and enthusiasts can install their favorite herringbone pattern in any direction and space.”
